In Battle of Defending Regional Champs, Cov Cath Pulls Away from Campbell Co.
Bryan Burke - The River City News
In a battle of regional winners a year ago, Covington Catholic found themselves in a dog fight against Campbell County at home for three quarters on Wednesday night, but blasted off in the fourth to win easily, 65-46.

It was the fourth game in six days for the Colonels after spending the weekend playing other elite Kentucky teams in Louisville, but after hammering Bellevue on Monday and making an impressive statement against a good team on Wednesday, Covington Catholic has shown already that they are legitimate defending state champions.

Campbell County came out hot with Deondre Jackson zooming past everyone off of the dribble and getting fouled in the process. His quickness helped Campbell County roll off 13 straight unanswered points in the first quarter and closed it out with a 17-12 lead. Jackson finished with 15 points on the evening.

The Colonels responded with a run of their own as coach Scott Ruthsatz called for his scorer, Cole VonHandorf, to become isolated with his defender and create an open shot for himself. It warmed up the sophomore sensation and propelled Cov Cath into the lead by halftime.

After the half, the Camels made it more of a priority to find their talented big man Matt Wilson down low in the post. This allowed the center to get busy on the blocks as he proved simply too big for only one Colonel to handle. His brief domination on the glass after halftime game Campbell County a big dose of confidence and a second-half lead.
